BOSTON, Mass. -- Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers ran out of time Sunday night.
Perhaps their amazing fourth-quarter comeback will give them hope on their home court beginning Tuesday night in Game 3.
Bryant scored 13 of his 30 points in the last 7:40 as the Lakers erased all but two points of a 24-point deficit before losing to the Boston Celtics 108-102 in Game 2 of the NBA finals.
Only three teams have ever recovered from the 2-0 deficit Los Angeles faces to win the finals. But the teams are scheduled for the next three games at Staples Center, where the Lakers are 8-and-0 in the postseason and have won 14 straight since last losing March 28th.
Bryant shot 11-for-23 in Game 2 and also had five of his eight assists in the fourth quarter.
